Actually this applies more to the novel characters. The games’ SoDs all fight alongside you for different purposes.

In order for the premise to work the Tablet should always be full regardless of if you've recruited someone or not, because every other character on every other tablet has either been part of your group already by the time you get the tablet or agreed to join your group afterwards. The Destroyers just appear on the Tablet because... reasons. It's contrary to every other star recruited before or since.
Though the worst part is probably how the game never even mentions it. The Tablet just appears for no particular reason and no one is the least bit concerned about why there's giant stone with everyone's names on it, including the people they're fighting against. At least in the manga there was a scene of Luc being bothered by appearing on it.
In Suikoden III, the story after the three protagonists finally join up was shortened due to development time restraints.
